Update: Olivas is "out of danger", the state attorney says there have no arrests in the shooting and motive remains uncertain and under investigation. The singer was transferred to an undisclosed U.S. hospital and sustained 8 gunshot wounds.
Earlier: Alfredito Olivas, the regional music singer, was shot last night during a performance in the city of Parral, Chihuahua. As of one hour ago, his condition is listed as “critical”, sustaining 2 bullet impacts two others missed the singer. A few blog reports are stating he has died.
El Diario and social media is reporting that that the shooting was the result of a jealous rage from a gunman who was inebriated. Supposedly, Olivas was flirting with the man's girlfriend. Olivas had gone down into the audience, (conversely, he brought her up on stage), then dedicated the song to the girl. Police have suspects in custody and have recovered a gun used in the attack. The shooter is reported as being Rafael Mendoza age 38.
However, last June, a manta was hung in Obregon Sonora threatening Olivas, after the murder of popular singer Tito Torbellino:
Well we are here and we are not leaving,
Chapito Trinis watch out... because we’ve come
with everything, pure federal force salazar and the same that
was done to Tito is going to happen to
Alfredito Olivas, fucking Chapo Trini Olivas
